Tomato, To-mah-to

Yesterday the kids and I are in the minivan driving to an appointment. I have been hot, unable to sleep and therefore unfairly grumpy - especially to the little ones who are trapped with me all day. this has nothing to do with my post - I just need to confess to ease my guilt a little.

Back to the point. As we are driving we pass a small pasture with 4 or 5 horses in it. K gets very excited and the following conversation occurs:

K: Oooh look Mommy - horses!!!
Me: Oh yea, and look at the baby.
K & E: Ohhh how cute!
Z: Ew I see droppings!
K: Yeah. I see poop.
Me: stifled laugh
Z: [huge eye roll]

You can't make this stuff up.

The cute innocence reminds me of a story my mom likes to tell about Rochelle and Justin.

She was giving them a bath together, I think Rochelle was about three and Justin two. Justin stood up to get out of the tub and Rochelle looks at Justin and then says to my mom "Mom look, Justin has a tail."
